Location and Uses
In Spirit Tracks, the Whip can be found in the Ocean Temple. Its main use is to swing from poles and for puzzles that require the transfer of certain Swords from one place to another. It can also be used to remove thorns from trees that block Link's path as well as being able to hold on to flying propellers to travel to otherwise unreachable areas. When summoning birds by playing the "Song of Birds," Link can use the Whip to latch on to the wooden bars they hold, which allows him to be carried by them.
The Whip can attack certain ChuChus that Link cannot attack with his Sword. It can also take the Shield and armor away from certain enemies. The Whip is required during the fight against Phytops, the boss of the Ocean Temple, where it is used to pick up and throw thorns to damage the creature's Weak Point.
In Skyward Sword, the Whip can be found in the Ancient Cistern. A ball of light is found at the end of the Whip which can attach to many things. It is also possible to hang on poles and certain branches with the Whip and swing in the air with it. It can also be used to attach to the hooked thorns of a Lily Pad to flip it over, to pull out-of-reach levers, and to uproot Peahats to later be used with the Clawshot. Rupees and Hearts can be grabbed with the Whip and pulled to Link. As a weapon, it can be used to defeat weaker enemies, stun larger ones, and to dismantle the Ancient Cistern's boss, Koloktos. The Whip can be used to steal Monster Horns from Bokoblins. To use the Whip, the Wii Remote must be flicked.
- The design of the Whip from Spirit Tracks is a reference to the Rope Snake from Mother 3.
- In an early version of Skyward Sword, the Whip handle was adorned with a skull.
